Overview

This lovely apartment is located on the piano nobile, noble floor, of an ancient 16th-century palazzo just behind beautiful Piazza Santa Croce.

The architecture of the surrounding buildings, with their tiny private courtyards, gives the Santa Croce Apartment a cozy, secluded feeling, in spite of being located in the heart of Florence.

The apartment has been completely and beautifully restored, and many of Florence's attractions are right at your doorstep, as well as coffee bars, restaurants and shops. There is a grocery store just 200 meters from the apartment. Santa Croce square is just a one-minute walk, and the Uffizi Gallery is just ten minutes away. The owner, a well-known photographer and writer, has personally furnished and decorated this unique apartment with an interesting blend of tradition, taste, and high-tech design—along with a few hints from the recent past of the 50s, 60s and 70s. These diverse styles come together to give the apartment a relaxing, comfortable ambience.

The Santa Croce Apartment is located on the second floor of an elevator building. Its impressive entrance is decorated with brightly-colored 18th-century frescoes on the walls and high ceilings.

Featured Amenities

Elevator, fireplace, convertible extra bed, full kitchen with dishwasher, terrace for al fresco dining, washing machine

The Santa Croce Apartment has a brand new, modern air-conditioning system. Because of the historic frescoes, the owners are not permitted to install central air-conditioning. The "splits" located in the living room and kitchen cool the entire apartment using inverter technology.

Reviews for Santa Croce Apartment

    This is a somewhat delayed but very heartfelt THANK YOU. The Santa Croce apartment was absolutely beautiful and exceeded all our expectations. Elisabetta was lovely to meet and the location could not have been better. We happened to be in Florence during one of the absolutely hottest weeks of the year but thanks to such a gorgeous home base (with good a/c) we did not mind coming home in the afternoons to rest and relax in the beautiful setting of the apartment. We were then able to stay out later at night and walk home feeling very safe thanks to the great location.

    Thanks for everything you did to clarify arrangements and I will not hesitate recommending this spot, and your company to friends for their future vacations.

The Apartment

Features

  • An archway leads to a modern living room, with white couches, a marble fireplace, and a dining area with a table for four.
  • Small hallway leads to a studio, completely adorned with frescoes and outfitted with satellite TV, high-speed Internet access, telephone/fax, and stereo. A sofa converts to a single bed to sleep an additional guest. Next to the studio is a bathroom with shower.
  • The kitchen is bright and spacious, with a dishwasher, microwave and American coffee maker. A door opening onto a lovely terrace just perfect for al fresco dining in the summer.
  • The owner's eye for the aesthetic is perhaps most obvious in the beautiful wood-paneled double bedroom. A queen-sized bed is a crossover between a traditional wooden bed and a modern platform bed.
  • There is an en-suite bath with sink and tub, and a separate WC.
  • The apartment also has a washing machine for laundry.
